Mullaperiyar panel gets two-month extension

The Supreme Court Monday gave two more months to an expert commitee headed by former chief justice of India A.S. Anand to submit its report on the safety of the Mullaperiyar dam in Kerala.

A five-judge bench headed by Justice G.K. Jain accepted the request by the committee for two more months time to submit its final report on the core sample of the dam structure.

While granting the extension, the court expressed its displeasure over the non-cooperation of the Tamil Nadu and Kerala governments with the expert comittee.
The state governments are at loggerheads over Kerala's decision to dismantle the dam, holding that its structure was not safe. The Tamil Nadu government manages the more than 100-year-old dam.
